Grigorenko now officially another prospect in Sabres' stable

Russian signs entry-level deal



Grigorenko should be playing for one Russian team soon, however. He plans to join his country’s world junior championship camp next month. Four exhibition games are on the slate.


Regier on signing players for the AHL: “We are filling up quickly in Rochester. If we sign another player, it probably is just one, maybe two. We’ve got a pretty strong, full roster there.”

Shortly after Regier spoke, reports surfaced the Sabres had signed winger Frederick Roy to a one-year, two-way contract.

Roy, the son of Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy, participated in the team’s development camp. He had 92 points playing beside Grigorenko with the Remparts last season.

If there is a lockout – the collective bargaining agreement expires Sept. 15 – the Sabres would send some NHL players on entry-level deals to Rochester.


Regier said he’s had one conversation with Tyler Ennis’ camp. The center and winger Patrick Kaleta are the team’s notable unsigned restricted free agents.

“We’ll continue to negotiate through the week here,” Regier said about the players.
